The high tide, strong winds, heavy rains, and floods occurred due to the intensity of the extremely severe cyclonic storm Mocha in the Bay of Bengal.
Due to Cyclone Mocha, an inflow of water up to a height of about five feet in Mann Shwesettaw Pagoda in Minbu Township, Magway Region, the collapse of the platform of Dhamma Razaka Pagoda in NyaungU Township, Bagan, the falling of the facade of Htilominlo Pagoda, and the fall of the brick wall of Thatbyinnyu Pagoda consequently happened. The Shwebontha Pagoda collapsed, and its umbrella fell as well.
Religious buildings and stupas damaged by the cyclone are under repair by archaeologists and relevant officials, and the water has reportedly receded at Mann Shwesettaw Pagoda where the water entered. — MNA/CT
